August Writing Prompts, Day 7 – Treading lightly

From Putting My Feet in the Dirt (https://puttingmyfeetinthedirt.com/), August’s prompts are here: https://puttingmyfeetinthedirt.com/2019/08/01/august-writing-prompts-2/

And today, the prompt is “Treading lightly”.

So, after just over five weeks off on a wonderful, and somewhat productive, vacation, I went back to work yesterday.  I mention this because I am working on treading lightly, given that some things did not go well in the couple of weeks before my vacation, and I while I am happy to be back to a routine in a job I really do love, I am reticent to allow myself to be too happy or hopeful for a satisfying and collegial workplace at the moment.

So, treading lightly, I will enjoy the people and work I can, and leave the dysfunction to be flushed away into the sewers of what has now passed.  I’m not really sure what that means, but here is a picture which reminded me of flushing, but also shows some of my productivity with painting the bathroom on my holiday (the before picture is below).

  1. Nicely done! 🙂
    I hope your work situation smooths out soon. It’s stressful when you love a job and there are people problems.
